Mercury ProblemsTransmission Failure Common Due to Front Pump Failure
Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.
The battery light may illuminate on the instrument panel because the alternator wire harness connector is damaged. A new connector kit is available and should be installed to correct this concern.
The car had 64600 miles on it and the headlights started going out while driving, which can be very dangerous. The problem is in the Light Control Module which is an expensive part (around $500 to $600 + labor).

Mercury RecallsHeadlights Fail To Operate
The lighting control module may fail, resulting in the loss of headlight operation. Dealers will replace the lighting control module free of charge to resolve the concern.
The fuel vapor canister purge valve may not operate properly and cause the fuel tank to crack and leak fuel. Dealers will perform a leak test on the canister purge valve and inspect fuel tanks for cracks, replacing parts as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
For a vehicle that has had a remanufactured Ford automatic transmission installed, the shift lever bolt may be loose, allowing disengagement of the shift lever from the transmission. Dealers will inspect the transmission and either tighten the shift lever bolt or replace the shift lever assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
